Ways To Lower My Pulse Rate  

Pulse rate is the rate at which heart beats. It is the number of times the heart beats every minute. Different activities can have effect on the pulse.

For instance, if you are with someone you love, your pulse rate can increase. The normal range of resting heart beat is given below.


Age group

Normal heart rate

Children  age 11-17




Well conditioned athletes


It is seen from the above that athletes have pulse rates on the lower side in comparison with adults. If one wants to lower the pulse rate, there is a way out. One has to take the path of athletes.

It is observed that the heart is capable of adapting itself based on the demand it experiences. Physical exercise can create certain changes in the heart. The type of adaptation the heart undergoes depends on the type of exercise and the demand made on it.

Basically there are two types of demand, static and dynamic. Static demand involves smaller group of muscles under extreme resistance but for a short period. Weight lifting falls in this category. It creates static demand. Dynamic demand involves larger group of muscles at shorter resistance but for long durations. Aerobic training and tennis are examples of the dynamic category. The response of the heart towards weight lifting is thickening of the heart muscle walls. The response of the heart to aerobic training is increase in the internal chambers of the heart. This will help the heart to handle larger volume of blood.

With the increase in the heart size, the blood pumped from the chambers increases making heart more efficient pumping machine. As the volume of blood per beat has gone up, number of beats required per minute comes down. Hence, a trained athlete has a lower pulse rate.

One can take up aerobic exercises such as cycling, jogging and swimming can be taken up to reduce pulse rate.

Why-Do-Athletes-Have-Lower-Pulse-Rates      It is observed that the normal resting pulse rate for adults is in the range of 60-100 beats per minute. But in the case of athletes this range is lower and comes down to 40-60 beats per minute. The aerobic training makes all the difference. More..
